Abstract

When sheep are examined at post-mortem, bladder-like structures or cysts containing a clear watery fluid may frequently be observed in the body cavity and in various tissues and organs. These are tapeworm cysts and represent larval or immature forms of tapeworms, the adult form of which is found in the intestine of the dog and other closely allied animals.
